I've been a member of three gyms in this town. The Richmond Athletic Club is by far the best. It's run by honest, caring people, it's clean, and the people who go there are very diverse. Even more important, they are welcoming. Most gyms are around $30 unless you choose Get Fit which is $15 for a reason. You can't get in the doors and a lot of equipment is broken on a regular basis and never fixed.

Yes it's a great place if you want to be surrounded by stuck up "Christian" bitches who are not friendly and all judge one another! It's just like church!

^^^^ that? Could not be further from the truth. I have never met one stuck-up person in that gym, nor have I ever heard anyone openly discussing their faith in there. No ones cramming anything down anyone's throat, good or bad.. It's a great gym. Have you ever even been there?

Unfortunately, yes. I had the unfortunate experience of being a member for a year. They don't have to openly discuss their faith at all. The owners are holier than thou hypocrites who treat people like crap and have immediate family members who enjoy spending time in jail according to jailtracker. That whole holier than thou thing translates into asking instructors not to use any music that could be deemed offensive which was pretty much any song played on the radio. NO THANKS.

It is a gym..for your use for physical fitness. NOT a social club. If you're looking for a bestie for life then maybe you should join one of those facilities instead. Same as if you complained about the customers in a grocery not catering to your ego!

Actually, no it's not. It's a space with one big room and five treadmills and some crappy ass weight machines. It's FAR from a gym.

I was looking on here for people's opinions of a gym and why they like or dislike it before I commit to one. I prefer not to be associated with an establishment that discredits others businesses that just tells me that either they are hurting for business, slow and will soon close or they have disrespectful staff, owners etc...working there. Either way, I choose to seek help with my weight loss and health issues somewhere other than the two gyms promoting themselves at the expense of others.

I sincerely hope you aren't referring to my defense against someone's ugly diatribe about FWF. I am in no way associated with ownership there. I'm just a member who was shocked to read those awful things! Now granted I don't go there to socialize, just take a class and tan from time to time, but no one has ever been anything but nice to me. There will be unfavorable people anywhere you go. But as far as gyms go, they have everything I need here.
